    1) If you didn't recharge it for at least 24 hours, do so. The first few hours of "charging" a completely dead battery doesn't actually charge it, it just sets it up to accept a charge. (A 15 minute charge barely gives the battery enough charge to turn the phone off.)

    2) If that doesn't work, try another battery. (Most cellphone stores have demos they can use to swap batteries for a minute.)

    3) If the phone won't start with a known chrged battery you need a Samsung dongle, or a repair shop that has one. It'll force the phone to start in download mode, from where you can reflash the phone. (Or try a Samsung Experience Center [the Samsung desk at Best Buy] for a reflash.)
